Krylos City - the golden city of the SCM Empire.
There is archaeological evidence of human occupation of the capital area from approximately 14,000 cycles ago, but the dense layer of much younger debris obscures these earlier sites.
Evidence of stone tools, pottery and stone weapons attest to about 10,000 cycles of presence. Several excavations support the view that Krylos City grew from pastoral settlements in the surrounding hills, although the actual date is subject to controversy. However, the power of the well known tale of the diaspora and the foundation of the city on the site of a penal colony tends to deflect attention from its actual, more ancient, origins
